In Campaign Series: Vietnam the series has evolved a lot, again: new capabilities, an intelligent computer opponent, a new type of war, even, compared to previous games. How to get started, then?
We strongly recommend everyone to start by playing through the four bootcamp scenarios included in the game. All Bootcamp scenarios have been built to be as informative as possible, there are a lot of messages to guide you through them. The little battles can be quite fierce, though. Please find below links to all playthroughs of each bootcamp to support you in learning the basic of this new episode in Campaign Series gaming experience. Each link opens a video from our Youtube channel:
- Bootcamp One – Learning the ropes
- Bootcamp Two – Building a Firebase
- Bootcamp Three – Helicopters, Combat, Assaults, Tunnels
- Bootcamp Four – Hearts and minds
